Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of clinical nurses' job stress, work-family conflicts, and burnout on their depression. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, one way ANOVA, Pearson's Correlation Coefficient and Stepwise multiple regression analysis. The results of this study shows that the job stress of the nurses was higher than average, the work-family conflicts was moderate, burnout was less than moderate, and depression was mild. The higher the job stress, the higher the conflict between workplace and family, the higher the burnout, and the higher the depression was. The main factor impacting upon the mental health of nurses was work-family conflicts followed by burnout. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a program that can prevent job stress and resolve burnout and support work-family conflicts to prevent depression of clinical nurses and to improve quality of life.
